Sigma Kappa Cuts Out Alzheimers

On April 18th, Sigma Kappa brought back their "Cut Out Alzheimer's" event, which has not been held for several years. Stylists from Philip Pelusi hair salon in Southside were gracious enough to spend their afternoon giving $10 haircuts to students and staff on Duquesne's campus. All of the proceeds from the event went to the Sigma Kappa Foundation directly supporting Alzheimer's awareness and research. From the event, $750 was raised for this amazing cause. Thank you to all of those who came out to support our chapter in raising money for a great cause!
